You Are My Sunshine

by Johnny Cash



The other night, dear,
As I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms.
But when I woke, dear,
I was mistaken.
So I bowed my head and cried.

This is the definition of hauntingly beautiful.

I haven’t posted anything about my life and fibro in quite some time now. Work is taking up 98.5% of my time, so, here’s an update:

I feel like shit.

How is everyone these days?

the best part about being in your 20’s is slowly caring less and less about what people think of you and surrounding yourself with good people

the worst is that I’m broke

You don't know me, and this might seem random, but I see in your profile picture that you have a tattoo. I want to get one, but I'm worried about the effects it might have with my pain. If you got it post-diagnosis, do you think it was easier or harder to handle the pain of getting it?

I’m not sure if I can say it was harder to get a tattoo because I have fibro. I was diagnosed at 14, 7 years before my first tattoo. I have two, now, but I can tell you the one on my chest hurt. A lot.

I felt completely drained afterwards, and sore all over. It probably took me about 2-3 weeks to get back to normal. Well as normal as you can get with a chronic illness.
